Thanksgiving Football


This year our entire family decided to meet in Hilton Head Island, SC for Thanksgiving where perhaps the highlight of the week was a huge game of football.

The kind of family football that includes children, adults, in-laws, out-laws, a sister who just announced her pregnancy, and all ages between three and sixty-five.

The kind of football where everyone was just plain goofy.

The kind of football where a four-year-old got the ball, and an uncle on the opposing team carried him(the boy AND the ball) to the end zone for a touchdown.

The kind of football in which teams kept getting confusing. Are you on my team?

The kind of football where a cute three year old niece in ponytails kept distracting everyone with her cuteness.

The kind of football where an interception was cause for riotous laughter.

The kind of football in which no one kept score.

And the kind of football that earned me the name Fumble-ina.

Uhm, whatever could they mean by that?

Personally, I think Fumble-ina sounds right delicate! ;)
